A 6-foot-7 mixed-use pavilion by Fort Lauderdale (Florida) Howard reduced his list to seven schools that included FloridaAnd George TownAnd LSUAnd North CarolinaAnd TennesseeAnd Vanderbilt, And Michigan. However, his final decision came to choose the Wolverines’ men’s basketball program over the Tennessee Volunteers.
“It was a tough decision because I was seriously looking into Tennessee,” Howard says. “But it was obvious that the family atmosphere was because of my dad. I also feel I will have a good chance to play right away. I honestly love the way everyone is treated the same on campus. I cared about the little things when he came to this hiring process which just stood out combined with the culture and environment of the program.”
Getting a chance to play for your dad at a high master level is a very rare opportunity. Now that Howard is committed to his father’s program, he looks forward to continuing to improve under the leadership of the man who has played such a large part in its development.
“Honestly, it would be great because we’ve always had a smooth relationship that’s never forced,” Howard says. “Growing up, he was always on the road because of being in the league, but when he comes home it’s been great. But since I was growing up, he’s been there every step of the way. He helps me with different aspects of the game and always gives me tips on how to improve. As I got older, the things he was saying started to click. Honestly, it would be great because we always have a smooth relationship that is never forced.”
Fourth member of Michigan’s 2022 recruiting class, Howard joins the Four Star Point Guard Doug McDaniel, four stars forward Greg Glenn, and a big four star man TARES RED.
When Howard was asked what he plans to bring to the program, he said, “I know it’s cliched to say but Michigan honestly gets a winner and he’s the team player. I’m someone who doesn’t hold back from not having competition someone who’s going to help contribute once he gets on campus.”
Howard is ranked 37th overall in the industry-generated 247 Sports Composite rankings.
